Neapolitan Bridge : ‘Il Globo’

    This is a hand-made replacement bridge in ebony or rosewood and bone, to fit old bowlback mandolins, and is based on an existing bridge on a Washburn bowlback.

   It is 100-10mm long, 15mm tall before fitting, and 5-6mm wide, tapering to 3-4mm at the top, which should leave room for compensation. It will suit required bridge heights of 6-15mm.

   It will need to be fitted, but comes with a slightly curved foot, to begin fitting to the domed Neapolitan top. String slots can be cut if requested, but I will need to know required spread of strings.
